  • I love taking my 4K classroom here! This is a great place where the kids can wonder and still be contained. I would not recommend a guided tour for kids under 8 because a lot of the information goes....  more

  • If you're into rocks and minerals, this is the best-hidden treasure in Madison. Off the main path and hidden within UW-Madison campus, the museum is a must to visit if you appreciate everything...

  • This is a hidden gem in Madison. It is not real big, but you could spend a lot of time learning about the history of some Wisconsin artifacts and see some great rock and mineral specimens. Spoiler alert. There are also some skeletons of prehistoric creatures. The admission is free, but a donation is accepted. It is a perfect opportunity for all ages. I used to take school groups there, but now I share my knowledge with friends. Don't miss the luminous rock room. Enjoy.
  • Amazing little museum of rocks and fossils! It's free and located on the Madison University campus. My science loving kids really enjoyed the exhibits and it was big enough to see a variety of cool and amazing things but small enough that my kids didn't get bored! A little gem in the heart of Mad town!
